Laplink PCmover Express 10
A cut-down version of Laplink's system migration tool

Laplink PCmover Express is a freee tool to help you migrate a few apps, your settings and data from one PC to another. Which means your brand new Windows 10 PC can look much like your old one, but without the hassle of manually having to reinstall and reconfigure everything.

The program is essentially a simple wizard which walks you through every step of the migration process. It will first scan your old system, helping you to decide what you'd like to transfer; your programs, setting and data can then be saved to a file; and a second copy of PCmover Express which you install on the new PC will complete the process for you.

As this is a free version of PCmover, you won't be surprised to find that there are some significant restrictions. It will only migrate a maximum of three applications, for instance. The program only transfers the settings and files for the currently logged-on Windows user (other accounts are ignored). And it only copies files from your system drive: other drives will not be included.

If you have complex individual applications which would be a pain to reinstall then PCmover Express could, just about, prove useful. And Laplink are at least doing their best to ensure the process runs smoothly, providing American users with a toll-free number, manned 24-7, which they can call for free transfer assistance.

Note that PCmover Express 10 is designed to migrate to either a Windows 8.1 or 10 computer, from an older XP or Vista PC, and is restricted to personal-use only.

Verdict:

PCmover Express provides an easy way to transfer your PC's settings and some applications from one system to another.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
